The Mid-Autumn Festival is a harvest festival notably celebrated by the Chinese people. The festival is held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar with full moon. The Chinese traditionally eat moon cakes, a rich pastry typically filled with sweet bean paste, during this festival.
Mid – Autumn Festival celebrates three fundamental concepts that are closely connected: Gathering, such as family and friends coming together. It’s said that the moon is the brightest and roundest on this day, which means family reunion. This is the main reason why people think mid-autumn is important.
Thanksgiving, to give thanks for the harvest, or for harmonious unions.
Praying (asking for conceptual or material satisfaction), such as for babies, a spouse, beauty, longevity, or for a good future.
Last week, it was the school’s “Mid-Autumn Festival Week,” a week where students are introduced to this Chinese celebration. At the end of the week, the students played a dice game that students thoroughly enjoyed, and this game involves six dice and a China bowl. Students from every grade are having fun with the game, dicing and winning the gifts.
